For more than five centuries, St. John’s Harbour has been prized as one of the finest harbours anywhere to be found. Ice-free, naturally sheltered and conveniently situated near the resource-rich Grand Banks and busy shipping lanes, it remains an excellent destination for the marine industry to thrive. It’s a diverse service centre for container traffic, offshore energy supply and service, fishing, marine maintenance and cruise ships, all with access to extensive service and supply chains. The Port of St. John’s continues to be a crucial economic catalyst for Newfoundland and Labrador, supporting its primary industries, generating thousands of jobs and welcoming visitors from around the world. The activity happening here makes a positive impact on the province’s economy each and every day.
